Favorite thing/place at Drexel: The new CCI building

When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... back in India (home) or on vacation somewhere else.

When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... Go for a walk in old city and definitely see the liberty bell.

Advice to new/incoming CCI students: College is new experience for everyone, and it is easy to get overwhelmed because everything is new. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. CCI has a stringent curriculum and it’s important that you don’t miss any classes. It’s easy to fall extremely behind in very little time due to the quarter system. Don’t be afraid to reach out.

What is your dream job? I don’t have a dream job, but I would love to work in the field of data science and analysis. My dream career path would be to an entrepreneur in the computing sector.

Favorite Animated Character: Jerry from Tom and Jerry
